This'll probably ring a bell because of its method of production and delivery
This feels like it was done in the same standards as tons of other military films in that the colors are bad, and it has alot of old computer generated text superimposed over a background and a completely flat narrator.
Interesting also because of the mention of the Soviets as being the main threat, in particular:
Intourist! TASS! Aeroflot! I can't read the rest!
His stressing is a bit unusual (eg. "Cland e stine") to me.
You can tell this was supposed to be shown on a big screen, the print minuscule! At least 2 screens are illegible!
The espionage scene is perfect for clipart, or incorporating into film somehow.
Text on blue background time! This is the classic.
Good shot of an ancient xerox machine.
Don't think too many people have to worry about trashing carbon paper.
What's that pentagon with stairs about?
"Multi-discipline Foreign Intelligence Threat" is barely legible.

The Homosexuals are watching you
A fascinatingly cheap film, since this IS the military right? They would have, ummm money for this type of thing? made about homeland security before anyone knew what homeland security was. Now, at this time, we're talking about the Cold war, so there is plenty of talk (and grade 4 collage displays) about the Communists. My favorite part of this film is how people can pick up information. Social Clubs! Concerts! There's a picture there of a 2 guys in a bar, that curiously looks a little TOO chummy yikes! I guess that's one way of extracting info, get into their pants and then blackmail them! Actually, the 2nd half does have some relevant info, so that's somewhat interesting, but the whole cheap slideshow presentation somewhat derides the whole thing.

An arid Cold War relic of a slideshow warning Walter Reed Medical Center staff of Soviet-Sino intelligence recruiters. Agents may seek you out by common interests, social contacts, or mutual acquaintances, and you might do their bidding because of profit, blackmail, ideology, or threats against family. So be careful what you disclose, the documents you handle, and shred the evidence.
